We started off by talkin'
About the tattoos on her back
And the bands that we both hate
And anything to make the moment last
Hopin' you might spend the night
And watch our feelings collide
It seems like summer's just
A state of mind

I'm gonna make sure
We never fall apart
But you're not trying hard enough
So this can last forever
Do you remember

Crashing parties
Just to get our drinks for free
You would touch your skirt
And tell me you had nothing
On underneath
But all these memories
Are burning me a bunch
Knowing you and I
Might never get this right
But we're gonna have to try
And if this promise was a fading dream
I'd suffocate myself to sleep
For one more night in silence
Next to
You

I'm gonna make sure
We never fall apart
But you're not trying hard enough
So this can last forever
I'll give my best shot
Holding onto what we got
I need to tell her that I'm ready
Whether she's ready or not

(Ready or not
Well, are you ready or not?
Ready or not
Well, are you ready or not?
I'm ready
I'm ready)

We tried
So hard
That all the walls we built up
Were fake

'Cause you're slipping away
Like a car
On ice
We're spinning out of control
Like an open wound
We need some time to heal
Like a cigarette
Her pleasure's worth the risk
Like a crowded room
My presence won't be missed
She don't care
And it's not fair
That I can't forget you
Just knowing I've let you
Out of my life
But I'm moving on
Well
She's moving on

So I'll be gone
You'll be a million miles away
I need to see you
Need to touch you
Like we used to misbehave
If your picture's worth a thousand words
I'd cut open my vocal chords
For one more night in silence
Next to you
Just to spend
Another night with you

Spoken: We say all these words, and we make all these promises. But I need to know, can we really make this last... forever?

I'm gonna make sure
We never fall apart
But you're not trying hard enough
So this can last forever
I'll give my best shot
Holding onto what we got
I need to tell her that I'm ready
Whether she's ready or not
Well, are you ready or not?

    General Commentok... you are wrong... dont change stuff if youre not positive lol ...well these lyrics are wrong... these are the right lyrics, from grant himself (a member of ice nine kills)

    We started off by talking
    about the tattoos on her back
    and the bands that we both hate
    and anything to make the moment last
    hoping you might spend a night
    to watch our feelings collide
    seems like summer's just a state of mind

    i'm gunna make sure we never fall apart
    we're not trying hard enough
    so this can last forever
    do you remember. .

    crashing parties just to get our drinks for free
    you would touch your skirt and tell me you had nothing on underneath
    but all these memories
    are turning me about
    you and i might never get this right
    (but we're gunna have to try)
    this promise was a fading dream
    something to get myself to sleep
    one more night of silence next to. . you

    i'm gunna make sure we never fall apart
    you're not trying hard enough
    so this can last forever
    i'll give my best shot holding onto what we've got
    i need to tell her that i'm ready
    whether she's ready or not
    ready or not, or not
    well are you ready or not?
    (are you ready or not, i'm ready, i'm ready)

    we tried, too hard for all the walls we built up
    we're fake, 'cause your slipping away
    like a car on ice, we're spinning out of control
    like an open wound, we need some time to heal
    like a cigarette, her pleasure's worth the risk
    like a crowded room, my presence won't be missed
    she don't care, and it's not fair
    that i can't forget you
    just knowing i let you
    out of my life, but i'm moving on
    well, she's moving on
    so i'll be gone, i'll be a million miles away
    i need to see you, need to touch you
    like we used to misbehave
    if your picture's worht a thousand words
    i'll cut open my vocal chords
    one more night in silence next to you
    just to spend another night with you

    (girl speaking)
    we say all these words, we make all these promises
    but are we to know, can we really make this last? forever?

    General Commentcouple corrections:
    "So this can last forever."
    i believe it should be:
    "So this can't last forever,"
    as that would make much more sense, and i'm pretty sure that's what ihear, too.

    "You said this promise wasn't fading through.
    I suffocate myself to sleep
    With one more night of silence next to...
    You."
    Should be:
    "If this promise was a fading dream,
    I'd suffocate myself to sleep
    For one more night of silence next to...
    You."

    "I'll give my best shot, holding onto what we got."
    what WE'VE got.

    "We've tried
    To find
    That all walls we built up......
    Were fake.";
    We've tried
    too hard (?)

    however, these are the best lyrics i've been able to find sofar, so yeaa.

    i love this song... i think it's about a relationship where the singer feels as though he's the only one making an effort anymore, but he's willing to try.
